Shooting Day Three: "Car Karma - Crutches Suck!"

Hello folks, 

Wrapped on day three for Insult to Injury season one. Despite the laughs on set, a sense of gloom pervades the cast and crew as we begin to close on Insult to Injury for the holidays (just one more day to go). In fact it was an emotional day overall on set. Edna, the Guardian Angel (Jennifer Shelton) broke down in celestial court; Maggie (Carol Kline) could hardly handle to stress caring for Mac - 

Oh yeah - and we reset actor Maura Knowles's toes on set.

Just kidding!

The bone resetting was in the script. Not in real life. Well - actually - it was in real life. Insult to Injury is based off Maura Knowles's real life struggle - a near death experience that changed her life forever. In the case of Insult to Injury, it also made Knowles's guardian angel wish she were guarding someone else - perhaps one with a guardianship insurance policy? Maura Knowles's story is a beautiful, inspirational one and you can hear more about it on The Food Heals Podcast #126.
